A true conservative would simply oppose every law change

Firefox reader mode is so good that I regularly forget that it is not available on other browsers.
It's such a convenience to strip all the unnecessary stuff out and get a nice and consistently formatted page every time.
The main content detection is good enough that I never had it fail on me. The text formatting option is a plus. All-around great feature.

"Out of solidarity with human workers."
"Their ethics modules says so?"
"Yes. So-"
"Then it must be just."

Does anyone have a recommendation of a library for creating graphics with an API similar to the DOM Canvas API in JavaScript?

Ideally I'd like to be able to efficiently access raw pixel data as well as high-level shapes like circles & rectangles. No need for fancy shader black magic.

Output targets would ideally be: screens and files.

Reactions to the fact that "google" is the second most popular search term on Google so far for 2020:
- 5 seconds later: Almost not surprising, I've done several times myself.
- 10 seconds later: I wonder what the top search term is?
- 10.1 seconds: It's not Bing.

Imagine doing something very illegal on the Internet so that an official court document says that "the defendant's encryption password is begaydocrimes69". Bonus points if a prosecutor says it under their breath because they're embarrassed.
